    Sounds like a nice gig, 80-85 people weekly.

    Like any other event, in a blank piece of paper or a text file, list out your food costs.  

    Then your fixed costs, variables for that gig, any helpers, whatever you want for your time, & profit. 

    Divide by number of people for price per person.
